The Dish & The Spoon Reviews
To be honest, "The Dish and the Spoon" does not have much in the way of a story, just people living in the past which applies to not just Rose, a mentally unstable woman, just as it is occasionally good to get away to gain some perspective. At the same time, neither of the lead characters seemed to have existed before the movie started. Otherwise, it is up to the Delaware Tourism Board and the two talented lead actors to produce anything of substance and just as importantly to prevent the movie from going over the ledge into cringeworthy territory.
The two grow closer as they spend several days together in a sleepy Delaware beach town, which itself seems to play a character in the film. Theirs is a unique relationship, bordering on romance, and characterized by small (often amusing, often touching) adventures as Rose continues her search for the woman and begins the process of healing.
The talented Olly Alexander also plays piano and sings in the film.
A beautiful independent film that deserves to be seen.
